This form is called amamah (Arabic), dastar (Persian), shimla or shamla, safa, lungi, sela, rumal, or dopatta.
The lungi is made of cloth of a special kind manufactured mostly in Ludhiana.

The dhoti is known under many names, dhutia, pitambar, lungi, &c. In some parts of India half the dhoti only is wound round the loins, the other half being thrown over the left shoulder.
Walking down a street market in Madras I decided that I would buy some lungi 's for presents.
